Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-6541) 404 for link on http://www.apache.org/licenses/GPL-compatibility.html
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2013 23:09:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6541?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13705211#comment-13705211

Sebb commented on INFRA-6541:
-----------------------------

Websites always used to have a link to report problems.
This is unfortunately now quite rare.

The BBC has a "Contact the BBC" link at the bottom of every page, which takes one to:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/20039682
Nice and clear.

However, as some pages are (excessively) long, it might be better to have a Support/Contact
link on the header.

We already have:
https://www.apache.org/foundation/getinvolved.html
which says:
"Use Apache products and give us feedback"

Might be useful to have a specific link there for reporting website bugs.

> Hi someone in Apache Foundation,
> on page http://www.apache.org/licenses/GPL-compatibility.html you have word 'compatible'
which links to http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/compat.html, which doesn't exist anymore.
I believe you probably want to link it to http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html or
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/quick-guide-gplv3.html.
> Side note: First I've emailed apache@apache.org. I've received your automated reply.
I've tried to find out where to report this, both at http://www.apache.org/foundation/preFAQ.html,
https://issues.apache.org and https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/. Basically: hopeless and
complicated. Why don't you have a link somewhere on main Apache.org website to report broken
links/website issues without forcing people to waste their (and now your) time?
> I'm not affiliated with GNU/FSF, I'm just a developer who wanted to locate the relevant
document (the broken link), and I want to save others' time.
